This smart and contemporary village home was converted from a chapel discreetly hidden between two period cottages on the High Street in the pretty village of Hinton Charterhouse. The unique and fashionable style feels more like New York loft apartment than quaint country cottage and is a great alternative to a city centre apartment. The active village benefits from two country pubs as well as good public transport.
To take advantage of the far reaching views, The Old Chapel was designed with reverse living so the first floor is a superb open plan double aspect vaulted sitting room, dining area and kitchen. Bathed with light from the skylights, this airy room has two principal sash windows providing lovely rural views across neighbouring fields, plus a side window currently enjoying a view over the neighbour’s wonderful wisteria. To one corner is a contemporary designed kitchen with sleek white units under granite work surfaces with a large breakfast bar dividing it from the dining area.
Although located on the High Street, it is set back between two cottages with a reception hall leading to the three ground floor bedroom areas, although with no opening windows they have been cleverly designed with glass bricks in the ceiling allowing natural light in. The master suite has a well-designed and stylish en-suite shower room with fitted cabinetry and the further double and single rooms are served by another fashionable bathroom.
Due to its tucked away location there is no outside space which makes this an ideal opportunity for those looking to acquire a lock up and leave village property.
